    It's not released yet. It will be developed by Rudy Huyn. Not sure if it will be an app or a bundled feature. Most probably a bundled feature.

    I don't know. Will try to ask Rudy on Twitter though. But I think it may coincide with the GDR1 update, maybe August-September like last year. But don't take my word for it.

    By the way, do you know in developer preview you can turn off the phone even it's locked? I think it's a very big bug( 🐛 ), just hold the power button a few second and done, it's even don't need password. If you lose your phone it's great chance for thieves!!

    You always can turn off your phone if you hold power button for a long time. It is like turning off PC by pressing and hold power button on it. How else you can restart your phone if it is hang?

    Windows Phone 8.1 works with Rudy Huyn on new "interactive" lockscreen themes | Phone Zone News

    I only found that. I don't remember the timestamp at which they showed it at build.

    Microsoft also have an app for this, but not released it yet.



    The Lock screen is the very first thing you – or your friends—see when you grab your phone, and in Windows Phone 8.1 we’re providing a new app that lets you set a wide range of interesting “Lock Screen Themes” which show all kinds of different visuals and animations. Make it yours…

    Considering the APIs are not released to third party developers atm, I think we are all tanking about the same app (MS+Rudy Huyn one).
    I think the video I linked could be a beta of the same app.

    No, that video doesn't show the new lock screen. I've seen this one demo'd by Joe and it looks far cooler. I'll try and hunt it down.

    There's a video on here somewhere that's a cut down version of the keynote for Build, where Joe plays with the diagonal lock screen.

    But this is where your lock screen item is debunked.

    Here you go. Zap forward to 8:30 in the keynote address

    Day 1 Keynote | Build 2014 | Channel 9

    And yes, it's developed by Rudy (I didn't know this before as I saw the video at work with the sound off).

    Yea, it's not hard for me to believe it's a fake since only one app of this kind is currently developed.
    I'll try to find this cut down version video of yours.

    It's not an app , it will be a part of windows phone 8.1 design language(for lock screen )joe twitted this way back in April that dynamic lock screen will not be included in developer preview program but it will be included in final build. Rudy Hyun is helping them by developing some nifty themes like Tokyo theme , etc.

    That's not a bug, unfortunately its just not a feature I believe. I don't think that feature is even that common these days.
    Would be a welcome addition though.

    c'mon, its a legitimate concern, I heard iOS did it in 7, but I haven't encountered it yet. (not saying I'm a thief)
